WHAT DOES PARAGAMI DOWNLOAD PACKAGE CONSIST OF?
Let's take a closer look at what the Paragami template download package contains.
It is good to know what you will get before the purchase!
We have taken all of your valuable feedback into consideration and have modified the files to suit everyone. They are now easier to work with. They will please both people with scissors and plotter.
We are trying to keep all of our templates up-to-date. However, the updates are done gradually. If your package won't be as expected, please reach out and we will revise the file as soon as possible.
READY TO PRINTHow to work with PDF
This is great to be printed right-a-way! Each layer is arranged onto single sheet.
PAGES GROUPED BY NUMBERS
The default size is A3, but it can be easily printed on any other paper by chosing "fit"
HIDE INDIVIDUAL LAYERS
If needed, you can hide geometry on the individual layers. For example if you will not need the dashed lines of the folds.
LIMIT THE PRINT RANGEWhat paper, what colour and where to get it
Choose only the pages which you want to print. For example there is no need to print the tutorial on the first several pages. Also use when you want to print sheets in different colour (p.e. odd pages in one colour, even pages in second colour.
ONE BIG FILE FOR CAD USERS
This files contains all the geometry. It is great when you have a CAD program and want to make your self maunal changes
The geometry is already arragned to A3 format. But you can easily move it and rotate it.
GEOMETRY SORTED TO LAYERS
For easier use, the geometry is sorted to individual layers.
DRAG & DROP
These are individual sheets - each sheet per one DXF file. Just drag & drop it to your plotter program.
APPLY YOUR OWN SETTING
Ungroup the geometry to be able to apply your own setting. Choose the lines for fold and set up your own dashing.
GREAT FOR MULTIPLE-TOOLS MACHINES
This is great for machines with multipe-tools. You can use the Poke tool for the folding lines, and Cut tool for the cut-out.
Enchance the final look by framing the art. Make your own custom box. The box will also keep the paper sheets in place. In any case, you should glue all the paper sheets together. Or use a shadow box. It will protect the art from the dust;)
To achieve the final depth of 25 mm, adding spacers is recommended. Spacers are extra paper stripes added between paper sheets. Use multiple
spacers if needed. Remember, the goal is to have 25 mm in total.
DXF & PDF
Prepared for A3 (in parts) and full scale (A0)
